I wonder how curious I'll actually be to hear it. I used to love "Mushaboom", but I heard it the other day for the first time in a while and it sounded lame.

one time I saw her some guy had a "MARRY ME?" sign. she was like, whoa, that's a lot of commitment for not really knowing you

he flipped it around and had "BURRITOS MAYBE?" on the other side

markers + feist reminded me of the burritos line

sounds like Feist!

This is fucking gorgeous. The whole sound of the thing is so *warm* and lovely, like it could envelop you totally.

'Graveyards' and 'The Circle Married The Line' are early favourites but nearly all of it sounds great.

production really brings out all the best qualities in her voice too

Cosmo Vitelli, Thursday, 29 September 2011 18:22 (4 years ago) Permalink

Just listened to this - I think its wonderful!
Not as pop-oriented as some of the Reminder songs were. But she still retained the other qualities that I really enjoy.

album in full as of today on Spotify (UK only maybe).

The Undiscovered First is fantastic. It has a wallop to it that I didn't expect from Feist, to be honest.

love that song, but i think the bass and horns were way too low on that recording. cool to see though!

That was great, thanks.

Interesting time signature- it's in 3 subdivided into three, so I guess it's 9/8

Dalai Mixture (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 20 February 2012 02:19 (4 years ago) Permalink

I guess there are some other songs on the album in regular 3/4 and one in 6/8 so this one had to be the way it was to mix things up

Dalai Mixture (James Redd and the Blecchs), Monday, 20 February 2012 03:07 (4 years ago) Permalink

it's in 6/8 but each verse clips the last beat from the last measure

also it's freaking gorgeous

Mushaboom and most of Let it Die are lame. However the Reminder is awesome, so is Monarch and what I've heard Metals and this of course...

Anti-Pioneer just towers over me, that song and this album <3 <3

She does 'Don't Give Up' on the new Peter Gabriel covers CD--haven't heard it yet, but am intrigued

I was just thinking "Hmm, I haven't heard from Feist in YEARS!" so I went on spotify to pull up The Reminder and was greeted by this album, which I had completely forgotten even exists.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 6 February 2015 19:10 (1 year ago) Permalink

i found it forgettable too. seemed like it removed everything i liked about her in the first place -- maybe purposefully, i don't know...

tylerw, Friday, 6 February 2015 19:15 (1 year ago) Permalink

I wonder if I even listened to this in 2011. I probably did at least once, but playing it now is basically a new experience. Doesn't seem too bad atm.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 6 February 2015 19:20 (1 year ago) Permalink

It's an amazing album and by any other artist would be considered a masterpiece, I dunno what people saw in her first two records but this is the one

ha maybe i should give it another go... just didn't strike a chord w/ me at all.

tylerw, Friday, 6 February 2015 21:02 (1 year ago) Permalink

"Undiscovered First" really is tremendous.

i saw her on this tour and that lineup of her bands and all the arrangments they did were so fucking great. just a well put together show.

yeah, great album. don't know why it went out so quietly

Nhex, Friday, 6 February 2015 23:56 (1 year ago) Permalink

and big ups to Gene Yuen Lang for getting the Superman job with Romita, wow!

Nhex, Saturday, 7 February 2015 00:04 (1 year ago) Permalink

oops. wrong thread sorry. too many tabs open

Nhex, Saturday, 7 February 2015 00:04 (1 year ago) Permalink

First two albums have A++ moments but are patchy overall. Metals is far and away her best album, front to back.
